The holiday season is often busier than expected. We don’t want your health care to get lost in the shuffle of your to-do list. Here are some important, healthy reminders now that temperatures have dropped.
It's time for your flu shot
Cold and flu season is upon us. Be sure to get your flu shot as part of your preventive care, and to keep friends and family safe during the holidays.
Get your COVID-19 vaccine today
Children 5 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage you to speak to your doctor to make the best decision for all family members. We recommend that you join the millions of others in the state who have received the vaccine and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The vaccine, including the first and second dose, is covered
That’s right, you pay $0 for both shots. Schedule your vaccine today based on the county you live in.
Need a ride to/from a vaccine appointment?
No problem. You can even be reimbursed for driving yourself. Call us at 888.975.8102 (TTY users call 711) Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
It's important to schedule Well Child Visits
Keep your kids healthy by scheduling regular check-ups with their doctor. Well-child visits are a way for your child’s doctor to see them before health issues start so they can live a happy and healthy life.
Screen your child for lead poisoning before they turn 2
Testing for lead poisoning is important since kids with lead poisoning may not look or act sick. Only a simple blood test can tell for sure. Schedule the test with your child’s doctor, your local health department or WIC. The test is 100% covered. Go to the appointment before your child’s second birthday, and we will mail you a $10 prepaid Visa® gift card.
